HOUSTON Camo Will Redmond Jersey , June 25 (Xinhua) -- The City of Houston in the state of Texas in south U.S. has joined a growing list of cities that oppose the state's new "sanctuary cities" law that targets illegal immigrants.
Houston City Council this week voted to join in a lawsuit with the Texas cities of El Paso, San Antonio and Austin opposing the new law, known as House Bill 4 (HB4). The law allows law enforcement officers to question the immigration status of people they detain or arrest.
The law goes even further by punishing officers who don't cooperate with federal agents by turning over immigrants. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said the new law raises serious Constitutional concerns.
"We want people to report crimes," Turner said. "When somebody sees somebody doing something illegal, or if they have been victimized by criminals Camo Sammy Watkins Jersey , we don't want them to be reluctant to report those crimes.
"As affirmed by police chiefs from throughout the state of Texas, HB4 makes us less safe," Turner said. "It doesn't make us more safe."
Under Texas law, police officers generally cannot arrest people without probable cause of a crime, and immigration violations often end up in civil court Camo Anthony Hitchens Jersey , versus a criminal court.
Some people believe that Houston and several other Texas cities are sanctuary cities, where police officers are not allowed to enforce immigration laws or cooperate with federal immigrant officials.
Civil rights advocate Al Maldonado said the new law encourages stereotyping and racial profiling of innocent people of color by Texas law-enforcement officers.
"There's a fear of being racially profiled," said Maldonado, director of League of United Latin American Citizens District 8, which covers 27 Texas counties encompassing over 100 Camo Robert Golden Jersey ,000 citizens.
"There's also the fear of getting involved ... that people may not want to cooperate (with police) for fear of being selected to show their (immigration) documents," he said. "I'm dark-skinned, and if I'm wearing casual clothes, don't have my driver's license with me and I cannot prove that I'm a citizen, I might get caught up in that system."
Maldonado said that Houston's decision to join in the lawsuit against HB4 is a big step to get the law overturned.
"As Houston being largest city in Texas and one of largest Camo Chris Conley Jersey , most diverse in the country, that will carry some weight and influence on the lawsuit," he said.
Texas is the first state to officially ban sanctuary cities under President Donald Trump. Colorado passed a law in 2006 outlawing sanctuary cities, but the measure was repealed in 2013. So far, only Texas Camo Mitch Morse Jersey , Mississippi, Georgia, and Tennessee have officially passed bills into law banning sanctuary policies.
The Texas law is set to take effect on Sept. 1.

BEIJING, May 4 (Xinhua) -- China will strengthen its regulation on think tanks Camo Chris Jones Jersey , according to a national guideline released Thursday.
The guideline, issued by nine ministerial-level departments including the Ministry of Civil Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Public Security, stipulates that think tanks operating in the mainland possess legal person status, and should be run by domestic social organizations.
Think tanks should carry out activities for the purpose of serving the Party and government decision-making Camo Kareem Hunt Jersey , the guideline said.
They should abide by state laws and regulations while enhancing their awareness of social responsibility, according to the guideline.
The guideline also stipulates a dual-management system for think tanks.
Private-run think tanks should register with the provincial civil affairs department and be supervised by the federation of social science circles at the provincial level.
Other think tanks will be supervised by authorities in related fields and register with civil departments of the same level as the authorities in charge.
Unregistered social organizations are forbidden to operate in the name of think tanks, the guideline said.

SUZHOU, China Camo Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey , April 30 (Xinhua) -- China's twice defending champion Zhang Jike made short work of teammate Liang Jingkun 11-7, 7-11, 11-7, 11-7, 11-5 in the men's singles third round at the World Table Tennis Championships on Thursday.
Zhang was too good for Liang in the first all-Chinese match in the men's singles at these championships.
Liang was certainly not embarrassed by the crowd favorite Zhang Camo Patrick Mahomes II Jersey , but it was clear that the 2012 Olympic champion and two-time defending champion was just a cut above his compatriot, particularly when the players were trading blows from deep behind the table.
Veteran world No. 9 Vladimir Samsonov of Belarus beat Joao Geraldo of Poland and will meet Zhang next in the round of 16.
Earlier in the day, Zhang and partner Xu Xin have escaped a thrilling match against Masataka Morizono and Yuya Oshima of Japan to progress to the men's doubles semifinals.
